And the Winner Is...

Drumroll please... I tallied my "Good Deed" comments and used a random number generator on the web to pick a winner and it's....Deborah at I Need To Knit. Who only entered once, but that's all it takes! Congratulations, Deborah! Contact me via e-mail with your color preference and address and I'll get on the phone and order your kit asap! You must blog about it extensively, so I feel like I've knit one of these, but don't have to make any kind of effort :) And I think this will make excellent recovery knitting. My mom was in and out of the hospital several times before she died, and after the initial crisis was over, and we knew that this time she would be ok, I used to go and sit with her in the evenings and knit. She'd watch her TV shows, and we'd sometimes chat, sometimes just sit in companionable silence. It was pleasant for both of us; the boys were very young, and I didn't have alot of opportunities to just sit and knit, and my mom was happy just to have someone there with her who was happy to be there. They're some of my best memories of time spent with her.

My new bed was delivered on Saturday! Yay! It ginormous! It feels like Dave's over there in a whole other country. I've slept great these past two nights, too. I love it.
Speaking of the new bed, when we took out the old bed, guess what I found? (Well, lots of dust buffaloes, but besides that.) Yes! The mate to the Grey Sock. Right where I thought it was, and had even looked for it several times, but it had gotten wedged between the bed frame and the wall, so I couldn't spot it until I moved the bed out of the way completely. And joy of joy, the second sock is close enough in size that I'll call them a match! I'm working the toe decreases on it now.
And lest we forget the Noro sock, I'm almost done with the heel flap.

Glad you found the first gray sock! It would be a huge bummer to have to knit a third one! Isn't it funny how new mattresses can work miracles? We've settled on a queen. Which works great until the Hubster decides to take his half out of the middle! :)

I am so happy for you about your new bed. I am sure it must feel like such luxury! And congrats on finding the elusive gray sock of mystery :) I can't wait to see your Noro socks in all their completed glory!
